    Most Wickets in Aus vs NZ

    Who do u guys think will take the most wickets?

    i dunno i am hoping it will be between Vettori and Lee?

    but more likely Johnson will luck out some sorry batsmen.

    Voted Stuart Clark on the basis of hope rather than expectation.

    Wouldn't really say it'd be easy to offer much of a prediction, there's several possibilities who are for all intents equal.

    Over the past 5 tests for New Zealand he has easily been our best pace bowler. Mills has been in terrible form of late, and Martin was rubbish in England.

    Unfortunately given NZ's abysmal batting effort against NSW Southee will likely miss out.

    Mods could add O'Brien in but I imagine he'd get as few votes as Krejza is likely to (ie, 0).

    krezja will likely not be used imo he will be in the team but not needed to bowl.

    I voted Martin because when I talked to him at the warm-up game he seemed very focused. I think he feels he needs to spearhead the attack so I think he will get wickets through hard work and out-thinking of the aussie batsmen,
    Daniel Vettori is an absolute legend!

    If its not Vettori then it will be O'Brien (for NZs wickets). Martin has never been much chop outside of NZ or SA, where he has a crazy amount of wickets. Mills is lethal with the new ball (provided he has some form, which he doesn't) but until it begins to start reversing he is ineffective in between the two periods.

    O'Brien can bowl with the new ball, the old ball, with the wind, into the wind. Has a good line and length and can get some movement. At one stage he did earn himself the name of O'Diren (much to the displeasure of Heath) because he was woeful at the top level, and in fact I'd still keep him away from ODIs, however finally he looks to be proving that FC record and not doing a Sinclair i.e. all the potential is there, but its gone walking someplace else. I'm not saying he's home and hosed, but he has the ability to be a good bowler at test level imo (boy I've done a roundabout on my opinion of the guy in the last few months, but he is a guy that for some reason I love seeing succeed)

    Picking Lee or Clark to have most wickets for Aus. Krejza (sic), Johnson, and Watson aren't much chop, though we'll find ways to gift them our wickets no doubt.

    One of the few pace bowlers I know who actually prefers to bowl into the wind.

    Voted Clark btw.

    Close call between Lee and Vettori for me. I went with Vettori because I'm optimistic more than anything, though wouldn't be surprised if Lee came out with a couple of four or five wicket bags.
